England opening batsman Alex Hales believes that The Three Lions have a good chance of winning the 2016 ICC T20 World Cup in India. The big hitting batsman who is an integral part of the T20 squad is confident that his team can do well on the spinning tracks in the subcontinent.
"I don't see any reason why we can't win. It's definitely the best side I've been involved with in Twenty20, with a hell lot of young ball strikers and a good bowling attack as well," Hales said, as quoted by The Guardian.
"I think it's a really exciting time, with the talent and the firepower we have in our squad, people who can hit sixes all the way down to number 11. I think we've got a good chance," he further added.
Hales was in sensational form during the recent one-day international series against South Africa, scoring 383 runs at an average of 76.60, which included four fifties and one hundred, and he will be expected to lead England's charge at the 2016 ICC T20 World Cup. In fact, he became the first English player to score a hundred in the shortest format during his 116 run knock against Bangladesh in the last edition.
England might have lost the ODI series 3-2 to South Africa but they will be a different proposition in the T20's, having won six out of their seven games since their first round exit from the 2014 tournament in Bangladesh.
The Twenty20 World Cup holds warm memories for the Englishmen. The 2010 edition saw Paul Collingwood lead his men to the title, which remains their only one on the global stage.
